“Absorb what is useful, Discard what is not, Add what is uniquely your own.” — Bruce Lee
Why spend thousands on expanding your toolbox? Why not learn an approach that sharpens your existing skills and learn how to keep the improvements made during the visit - between visits! The Eclectic Approach combines many different schools of thought. Assessment uses Repeated Motions, Neurodynamics and Movement Screening for patient classification.
Classification leads to treatment which draws upon techniques from various schools of thought, and includes thrust and non thrust manipulation, functional mobilizations and release (movement based), neurodynamics, and IASTM with the EDGE.
A strong educational approach and patient responsibility with home exercises, decreasing fear avoidance, and often simple movements the patient may easily perform are covered at each seminar.
The courses are 1 or 2 days, and the suggested length is after the course title, however they can be mixed and matched, combining two single day seminars into a two day presentation, etc.
The Eclectic Approach lets the practitioner "hack into the nervous system." It has been also described as the Jeet Kune Do of the health care arena. It takes the best and most effective methods of education, assessment, and treatment, and finishes it off with more education to lock the improvements in. These courses are not simply for "orthopaedic" or "sports" PTs, but pediatric, neuro, or any PT dealing with patients with movement dysfunction, pain, and more importantly, having a nervous system.
